Experiment

Target

The MAGIX experiment aims to reach luminosities in the order of 1035cm-2s-1. Such high luminosities can be reached in two ways: Either by the appliance of a high intense beam and a low dense target, or the reverse case. Since MESA will recover the beam’s energy, only the former case can be applied, in order to keep the beam quality good enough after the interaction. Therefore the target material is a gas. To achieve that the beam is only interacting with the target gas and nothing else it is necessary to develop a target which doesn’t need any walls. Two target concepts are elaborated concidering the mentioned subjects.
